Disney Pixar's BRAVE Blu-Ray Combo Review


Synopsis: Set in the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland, Disney Pixar's Brave follows the heroic journey of Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to change her fate, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane), unleashing chaos in the kingdom. When she turns to an eccentric Witch (voice of Julie Walters), she is granted an ill-fated wish and the ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her resources including her mischievous triplet brothers to undo a beastly curse and discover the meaning of true bravery.

Review: Pixar is the modern leader in animated film.  Sure, Dreamworks puts out some decent stuff, but I can only take so much far humor and ogres.  The latest film from Pixar is Brave.  This epic Scottish-themed film focuses on Merida, a princess that is trying to find her own way in life and has a wonderful adventure.  This film is full of the excellent animation and comedy that you expect from a Pixar film.  Also, one great aspect for us as parents was the lack of typical princess-prince romance.  This girl is an independant woman doing her own thing, not desperately seeking love and rescue from some prince.  We found it to be a great example for our daughter.   This film looks best in 3D..the scenes really pop, and of course its wonderful in high-def blu-ray too.  The DVD included in the pack is perfect to let the kids abscond with!  We highly recommend this one.
